Dr Suess Book Graduation Gift Tradition

Start this sweet tradition this year and after a few years, you will have the best graduation gift ever – that means more than just about any other thing you could give!

Places You'll Go Gift Seuss
If the thought of future milestones like your child’s high school graduation makes you weepy, grab a box of tissues and stick with me.  2 years ago as Lily wrapped up her very first year of preschool, a friend share this idea with me.  I thought it was the sweetest thing, and as we say goodbye to PreK next week and look towards Kindergarten next year, I just dropped off our book for the third school year in a row.

The premise is an easy one.  The task of digging the book back out every May/June to take to school is a little bit more challenging, but so far, so good.

Purchase a copy of Dr. Seuss’s Oh the Places You’ll Go.

Each year as the school year comes to an end, give the book to your child’s teacher to sign/leave a short note somewhere in the book.

My goal is to have her teachers sign this same book every single year (and can include other important coaches, mentors, etc as needed). I will then gift the book to her at her high school graduation. (Which of course I don’t even want to THINK about because she’s only 5 and time already feels like it’s flying.)
